In the last couple of years, the City of Los Angeles witnessed an explosion of dockless, on-demand mobility products and services. In order to better understand the implications of this technology on the City and its citizens, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) is administering a 120-day Dockless On-Demand Personal Mobility Conditional Permit.
Operators interested in participating in the Permit must fill out the application as well as meet requirements related to data collection, insurance, indemnification, and performance deposit provisions. Starting October 1, 2018, LADOT will begin receiving Conditional Permit applications from operators.
Upon completion of the Conditional Permit period, LADOT will administer a one-year Dockless On-Demand Personal Mobility Program, informed by the experience of the Conditional Permit period.
